The University of Bristol with partners at University College London, Cambridge MRC Biostatistics Unit, and University of the West of England have been awarded an NIHR HPRU of £3.85 million.
Health Protection Research Units will act as centres of excellence in multi-disciplinary health protection research in England, with the intention of increasing high quality applied health protection research. HRPUs will be partnerships between universities and Public Health England (PHE) in a range of priority areas.
Twelve topic-based priority areas were proposed – and University of Bristol, with our partners, was awarded the cross-cutting theme “Evaluation of Interventions”.
Our HPRU has work streams on: Economic Evaluation and Modelling; Population Studies; Primary Care; Evidence Synthesis; and Behavioural Science.
Patient Public Involvement will be led by UWE in collaboration with University of Bristol CLAHRC.
